THINC<sup>®</sup>-OSP-P300 CNC Control Delivers Process Efficiencies and Enables User Innovation

THINC®-OSP-P300 CNC Control Delivers Process Efficiencies and Enables User Innovation

Okuma’s history of introducing innovations in CNC control technology spans more than 50 years – and the THINC®-OSP-P300 is the latest breakthrough. The OSP-P300 brings a dramatic paradigm shift to the marketplace, with a process-based user interface rather than the traditional mode-based operational layout. This results in streamlined control operation and greater productivity. User innovation is supported by the control’s open architecture platform. more
Hand Scraping Sets the Foundation for CNC Machining Accuracy and Long-Term Stability

Hand Scraping Sets the Foundation for CNC Machining Accuracy and Long-Term Stability

Because of the associated costs in time and maintaining skilled labor, Hand scraping is an art that has largely been abandoned. At Okuma however, hand scraping is meticulously performed on every machine we build. That’s because there’s no substitute for hand scraping when it comes to maintaining high levels of CNC machining accuracy and sustaining a long, stable and productive life for your machine. more
Turn-Cut Enables Turning on Horizontal Machining Centers – No Secondary Machinery Required

Turn-Cut Enables Turning on Horizontal Machining Centers – No Secondary Machinery Required

Turn-Cut is a programming option available on Okuma horizontal machining centers that allows the machine to create bores and diameters that include circular and/or angular features. This enables users to turn features on large, unbalanced parts on the same platform where standard CNC machining functions are performed. Turn-Cut eliminates the need to purchase special-purpose machines, tooling, fixtures or add-on components. more
Thermo-Friendly Concept<br/>Helps CNC Machines Take the Heat

Thermo-Friendly Concept
Helps CNC Machines Take the Heat

Typically, machining accuracy varies significantly due to ambient temperatures around the CNC machine, heat generated by the machine, and heat generated during machining. Thermo-Friendly Concept automatically compensates for temperature changes, so high accuracy can be achieved without interventions from the CNC machine tool operator. Thus, machine accuracy is increased while decreasing costs, maximizing profitability for manufacturers. more
Open Architecture CNC Controls Optimize Machine Tool Performance

Open Architecture CNC Controls Optimize Machine Tool Performance

Any CNC machine tool can cut metal, but one of the keys to optimizing performance is capturing and analyzing processing data. The CNC control plays a critical role in capturing that data. Okuma’s THINC® (THe Intelligent Numerical Control) is the industry's first open architecture CNC control that grows with emerging CNC machine technology. more
